Auburn Women

My parents went to Auburn, all of my aunts and uncles went to Auburn and my older brother went to Auburn, so despite being born in Guam and raised in Virginia – I had orange and blue flowing through my veins all of my life. I had a wonderful experience at Auburn, it was everything I dreamed of growing up.

When I was younger, I never saw myself as someone joining the military. After spending my time in student government, nursing school and ROTC at Auburn, I grew the confidence and leadership skills that now help me today as an Army Officer and Registered Nurse in the US Army. I hope to come back to Auburn for graduate school one day.

I am proud to be part of the legacy of strong Auburn women!
